I asked the guy working for the restaurant if they had any vegan options, he showed me a couple of meals I could have, it was very tasty and filling so I can't complain, quick friendly service, decent price of 12 euros for 1 main and 2 sides.

As you descend from time atop the Acropolis, Antica restaurant is an easy stop on the way back to town. It has tables outside, which, as the sun dipped early on a bright but fresh March day, were warmed by portable heaters. The waiters were only too happy to accommodate those who wished to stick it out with a view... More

I kept returning to this restaurant because is was a short distance from my hotel, the food was good to excellent, but most importantly the wait staff made me feel like I was part of the family.

The food tastes excellent, the portions are large and the service is friendly, without being overbearing. The stoa in the ancient agora is about 20 yards away, in full view, and the Pathernon is visible above it. A great place for lunch.

Our family of four enjoyed the food we ordered. We each ordered a different item and all 4 were very good. The portions were generous and the quality good. We had a table outside by the street, which can get crowded sometimes. The restaurant was also busy so there was not a lot of room to move around. The prices... More

First came here a few years ago. The host is fantastic and clearly takes pride in what is a family run business. Came here again last week on the strength of the last visited and was not disappointed- the best carbonara I have had! Free wifi and great views of the ancient agora, a lovely spot for lunch.
